Ramesses provides decent support to the player's melee units. He is bulkier and faster than Hatshepsut but deals less damage and has a shorter firing range. This makes him ideal for early game map exploration. His ability should only be used if there are no enemy units in sight so that he can fend off any surprise attacks. Otherwise, he would deal more damage by simply attacking. Ramesses himself is also useful for ambushes as he can hide on forest tiles and strike any unit that comes dangerously close to him. If he is he found, his bulk should keep him alive from most attacks while at full heal and his speed will make it easier for him to retreat.


  • In his combat animation, Ramesses fights alongside Chariot Archers.
  • Hathor's Blessing of Air and Blessing of the Stars researches should also affect Ramesses, but due to a bug they do not.
